Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Tried ‘19 twice. From 100% Chenin Blanc, medium lemon color with notes of tangy citrus and stone fruits. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and tart lime with a mineral edge. Medium finish, vivid acidity ending with sharp mineral. Nice!

Tried another bottle. From 100% Chenin Blanc, medium lemon color with notes of tangy citrus and stone fruits. On the dry palate flavors of apple, pear and tart lime with a mineral edge. Medium finish, vivid acidity ending with sharp mineral tang. Good value.
